How We Measure Falls with Injury

Falls with Injury measures the number of patients per 1,000 patient days (inpatient days, plus the number of short-stay patient hours divided by 24) who suffered any serious or minor injury from a fall in the hospital. Hospitals can help reduce the risk of patient falls with injury by following the right steps.

Our data are collected by the Maine Health Data Organization. The data on CompareMaine covers the July 1, 2017 – June 30, 2018 reporting period. The measure is defined by the American Nurses Association (ANA). Learn more from The Joint Commission
